LE PAIN DE JADE & YATRA PRODUCTION present KEP IT ROOTS – REGGAE FESTIVAL
*** DUB ADDICTION ***
Cambodia´s one and only Ragga Dub Band. Original Reggae tunes with Khmer, African and German Raggamuffin MC´s !
Founded in May 2011 Dub Addiction reinvented the Cambodian music with it’s unique fusion of classic Reggae Dub riddims with Cambodian vocals sung by MC Curly, Dj Khla and additional female Khmer singers. Responsible for the typical Dub remix sounds is Professor Kinski aka Jan Mueller, based in Cambodia for 11 years. The German music producer has been working with MC Curly for 6 years on his own Khmer Hip Hop music.
After having had a successful start playing in Phnom Penhs local music clubs and festivals like the Kampot River Music Festival, Battambang Friendship Festival Dub Addiction became more international by playing at Denmarks Images Festival and Mad Fyah Reggea Festival in Saigon and is now planning tours to China, around SE Asia and Australia.
Their musical style becomes more electronic Ambient Dub and Dubstep without loosing their human energy (Seb on the bass and Toma on drums are magnificent, the additional eerie background vocals sung by French Jazz singer Khae Lhassan is just mind-blowing). With the appearance of ultra-tight Khmer Ragga singer DJ Khla their direction to pumping up-tempo Dancehall Riddims was paved.
Having done their debut album in 2011 DA has released their first official album „Kampuchea Kingdom Rockers“ released on Metal Postcard Records Hong Kong in 2013. The second album is currently in production, due in 2014…
